you're better off removing the entire thing. I think that would be easier than pulling and fabbing/cutting/welding the cooler. If I had to refer you, it would be to Adam at firstcoastdieselperformance. NOT liberator. It 600 bucks more than you're looking to spend?

I don't think removing the cooler has anything to do with blowing headgaskets, to my understanding head gaskets go south because of too much boost in the cylinders that stretch the stock bolts. Also, I did not notice any cooler egt's, didn't notice any quicker throttle response, didn't notice more boost or better mileage or less smoke. I wouldn't lead anybody to think they will gain even 1mpg by blocking the flow to the cooler, you're strictly doing to drastically reduce the risk of an egr cooler failure. my .2 cents.

PSD w/SMOKE: I modded my up-pipe removing the scoop and blocking the "T". You can do the R&I work yourself with hand tools and patience. You may need someone to cut the scoop and weld the "T" unless you can weld. The mod is not difficult or expensive for the DIY mechanic. You may find a CEL for "Low EGR flow" but using an SCT tuned to cut off the EGR function will prevent the CEL.

I found the turbo spooling much easier than before the mod with no additional findings. I was under the impression that modding the up-pipe helped prevent the flash boiling of the coolant in the cooler thus preventing the coolant from bypassing the cap on the coolant reservoir.

Using the modded up-pipe has worked great for me with no complaints. I'd love to do the full EGR delete I just need time and maybe a knowledgeable guide to help prevent mistakes.

Elite sells the sneaky pipe, which is an up-pipe that has the scoop already removed. It's cheaper and easier than removing the whole EGR cooler.

Ok so with an SCT with the tuning to shut off the EGR and then the up pipe and it's completely bypassed? I thought the tunes on the SCT could still allow the EGR to open 5% or something, so long term it would still clog right?
